Osceola Fundamental is having its 2nd annual high school golf tournament. The event is Sunday, April 17 at the Countryside Country Club. The tournament starts at 12:00 pm, and is open to the public. Everyone can join in, according to Mrs. Thompson, who is in charge of FBLA.

The tournament is limited to 144 players. When you sign up to be apart of the tournament, you can either sign up with a team, or individually. There is a maximum of 36 teams, and prizes will be given away to the following places: 1st, 8th 20th, 36th. The format of the tournament will be a four-person scramble, and ties will be broken by a scorecard playoff, beginning with hole number one. In addition to the tournament there will also be smaller contests for everyone to try, for example “closest to the pin”, and “longest drive.” The tournament will include three levels; platinum, gold, silver and bronze. The four levels include two to four people, a hole sponsor sign, and recognition of tournament handouts. Platinum is a $500 donation, gold is a $350 donation, silver a $200 donation, and bronze is a $100 donation.

“I’ve been wanting to try golf for a while, so I’m going to think about sighing up for the tournament this year!” said Danielle Benson, 10th grade. The cost of the tournament is $200 per team, and $50 per individual. All golfers will receive green fees, cart, range balls and a participant gift.

The application to sign up is located on the school website. For more information contact Mrs. Thompson, [email protected]
